‘Even McDonald Can’t Afford It’: AAP MP Raghav Chadha’s Jibe At Centre Amid Tomato Price Rise

Aam Aadmi Party MP Raghav Chadha on Saturday took a jibe at the Centre over the rising prices of tomatoes.

Taking the price rise issue on Twitter, Chadha said,” “Even McDonald’s can’t afford tomatoes anymore. Be it in our homes or restaurants, with inflation spiraling out of control, the government has turned happy meals into sad meals.” The AAP leader also attached a notice issued by McDonald’s skipping tomatoes from their menu.

As per reports, the retail prices of tomatoes touched ₹120 per kilogram in the national capital on Thursday. At the beginning of the year, it was ₹22 kg.

With the rising price of tomatoes in India, many McDonald’s restaurants in the country have removed tomatoes from their burgers and wraps due to supply shortages and concerns about the vegetable’s quality.

The fast-food titan has dropped the fruit from their menu citing a “temporary” seasonal issue. McDonald’s India, North and East, said it is constrained to “hold tomatoes for the time being” and is trying to resolve this issue by employing sustainable agriculture practices.

“Due to seasonal crop issues arising out of farm fields in a few regions, there are not enough quantities meeting our quality specifications available. To ensure our customers get the best quality we are known to serve, we are constrained to hold tomatoes for the time being,” an official statement said.
